Solas Award Winner for Best Travel Writing

Posted on May 23, 2016 at 2:35 PM

I'm so excited to share that I won the Solas Award for Best Travel Writing for my essay "A Stranger in Jerusalem". The 10th Annual Solas Award is given by Travelers' Tales, a publisher of popular travel books and anthologies. 

"A Stranger in Jerusalem" was adapted from my memoir "Falling Up" and describes what happened when on the way from a cemetery to the Wailing Wall, a shopkeeper stopped me with a question. Check out the essay here:
